Inexpensive jerry can holder?

Looking to mount 2 jerry cans to my YJ but I don't feel like spending hundreds of dollars for simple welding.. I would prefer to mount them on each side of my spare tire but IDK how.. Can you guys give me some ideas?

Do you have the cans already? I ask because there are other options for fuel storage.

Anti, im new to the whole jeep thing and offroading actually, what other alternatives for fuel storage are there? All i hear is that plastic bottles flex and dont hold pressure well, my little one gallon blows up to a balloon after a full day of sun exposure.

I have the kolpin 4 gallon jobber but the rotopax are versatile as are the daystar cam cans. Its thick plastic and dot approved.

yeah, my grandfather has a few German WWII red gas cans, I want to mount 2 of them to my jeep. Chances are I'll end up fabbing something up but I need some ideas of where to put them!

You don't want nazi gas in the grandson of the vehicle that won the war. That's like denying the holocaust ever happened.

I guess it's quite of a contradiction...

Do you have a tire carrier bumper or is it still hanging on your tailgate?

Send a pic of your jeep. Why not just strap a spare gas can to the fender?

If you want to mount them to your tail gate with your spare tire . You may have to reinforce our tailgate hinges and latch . 10 gallons of liquid is a lot of weight .
My 2 cents

I have one and I just use the one can and hi-lift but you could buy the bracket for another can.
